The K-PH-ML-D5-KV2 vibratory loss-in-weight feeder is designed for the low-rate addition of difficult flowing Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs). The feeder offers an easy-to-clean design, suitable where quick and easy cleaning is essential. The specialty vibratory feeding principle, coupled with K-Tron’s patented load cells and KCM controller, ensure high-accuracy feeding for even the most difficult flowing products. The feeder is ideal for continuous pharmaceutical operations, such as continuous extrusion, granulation, mixing, and coating. Typical applications include vibratory feeding of cohesive APIs that normally would build up when fed via standard twin screw configurations. The removable tray and end covers allow accessibility and ease in cleaning, with the 3-l inlet funnel transition hopper designed at a 65-degree slope for optimal flowability into the vibratory tray.
